For me the most important part of any vintage model especially but not limited to divers is the dial, then the dial closely followed by the dial :) and that dial looks great and if it does go to Guy he would perhaps tart it up a little more to look almost like new, remember dials are pretty important jmo :) :)
Wait, John, I’m still a little unclear on how important the dial is... haha! That dial is bonkers, though. Looks really good.

That will end up being a really nice one especially as the dial looks to be VERY good which imo is the most important part as everything else can be sorted, is that a reflection between the 4 and 5 on the dial ?.

Good luck getting it sorted.
Absolutely agree with you John. The dial has to be great, the most important thing for a vintage. I wouldn't touch the dial on this one but I would clean up the hands and lume to match.

Agree with prior posts. Guy is one of the best when it comes to these 6105s and their dial and hand restoration. Me personally, i would not touch the lume on this dial. Too nice and original. Hands, yes.

Agree with the recommendations. Guy has done a few 6105s for me and they are outstanding. Also, I wouldn’t touch the lume on this watch. I had one watch like this, with good dial lume and not-so-good hands. Guy left the dial alone and relumed the hands only; the match is perfect.

I agree with everything you say apart from reluming the dial, if the hands can't be lumed to match the dial (I think they can with our experts) I would rather have the hands slightly mismatched than relume a great original dial like that one (jmo).
I totally agree with you John.......i said more.... in my opinion only a good service ,change gasket,a nice clean and stop...this is my simple opinion.
